One morning I played with Inkscape tool mesh, which I hadn’t used before. I once tried, but I didn’t really understand it. But then I discovered this tutorial and decided to try it again by drawing an apple. I used the apple from this article, which I later found out to be a political one (Trump alert!). At first my apple looked like this:
Not exactly what I wanted it to look (I need to learn this mesh thing more), so I used my previous knowledge and improved it. I added light and shadows and hundred little dots. And I must admit I’m quite satisfied with the result:
Of course it doesn’t look exactly like the original. One my co-worker even said that mine looks like a rotten apple. 😀 😀 But as Inkscape is not the tool for digital painting, I think it’s quite fine. What do you think?
And thank you for visiting. I hope that you all have beautiful summer. Here in Estonia it has been really warm and sunny almost a month already. soon, because farmers and forests need it, but until then, I enjoy the beautiful weather. 🙂
Last year, in April, I posted an unfinished picture about the Spring as a young girl planting. I had a plan to finish it later, but I wasn’t sure how to do the background. Now, more than one year later, I finally finished it. I hope you like it. 🙂
Thanks for the visiting! 🙂

* I drew this picture already last year, but didn’t colour it until now. That’s why there is number 17 in the corner. 🙂
In Estonia (and in Finland) the February 14 is not only the day for romantic lovers, but we also celebrate it as the Friend’s Day. As I am not too romantic person, I prefer the last meaning more. And as I think that your significant other should be also your friend, it gives (in my humble opinion) to the day even more meaning. 🙂
One very special little girl asked me to draw cats. Hope you like them. 🙂
In the last few days the temperature has fallen and now it’s kind of crispy out here. But I don’t mind, as I bought new pair of boots, which are so warm and comfortable that I want to go outside to wear them. 🙂
If you also live in cold place, keep yourself warm and enjoy the winter. 😉

The yellowish colour is inspired by drawings of amazing John Kenn.
Pair of digitally made “papercut” foxes. I love this technique. I love how it seems like it’s made with paper, yet it’s made with Inkscape like most of my other works.
I was inspired by fantastic Estonian artist Eiko Ojala, whose digitally made papercut illustrations have achieved worldwide acclaim. His clients include, for example, Intel, IBM, New York Times and Washington Post. You can visit his website to see yourself how amazing his work is: www.ploom.tv.
Thanks for visiting! 🙂
In the last post I wrote that if I want to become better artist I need to learn more. Therefore I borrowed some books from the library about the basics of drawing and watched some Youtube videos that teach how to use watercolours properly.
However, I haven’t reached very far with my studies yet, because not long after I finished previous post I started playing with a new idea and I couldn’t get it out of my head.
I wanted to write this post about air pollution and US withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement (which was the reason why this picture was born), but my head has been empty recently. Therefore, after two weeks of waiting, I decided I post it without the long story.
Hope you like it!
